The Advantages of an LMS
An LMS allows you to administer your training course, collect fees, support your learners, develop course material and design its delivery. People from all over the globe can sign up to your course if they have access to the internet.
Offering courses as part of your product range gives you an extra edge over the competitors in your field. If you can offer new skills or offer eLearning instruction for your products you are more likely to become authority in your field and rank well with search engines such as Google.
Your course or training module can be as customised as you like and because its online, it is accessible around the clock. The course material can be delivered infinite times or rewritten just as many to freshen it up.
With an LMS you can manage multiple contributors to the learning modules. The system will factor in and track percentages and levels of contribution by the different instructors and course writers and allocate earnings accordingly without the need of separate admin handling.
Your course can be its own website or be integrated into your existing one.
In House Company Training
If you need to keep employees up to date with compliance regulations and internal administration changes, a workplace LMS is a simple and affordable method of delivery.
If you have on-boarding courses for new staff, your organisation can disseminate company information such as policy and procedures and OH&S training and save on time consuming and costly face to face training. Your simple internal LMS can teach new employees how to download and fill documents for superannuation, sick pay and leave entitlements.
If staff need training to operate equipment remotely or they are part of a sales team and need to access a company course material while on the road, an LMS is the most efficient platform for delivery. An LMS can be a cost effective way to deliver professional development courses to staff.
The best thing is that you can keep your courses up to date and new policy and training information can be distributed among the staff on a needs basis. All this simplicity without the expense of sending staff on external training courses.
We can develop your LMS
There are many Learning Management Systems on the market, and we have test driven plenty of them. We have selected the platforms that work well for our clients and have built several good online courses. We prefer easy to use content management systems so our clients can independently maintain their online courses with minimal technical support from us.
The platforms we have chosen affiliate seamlessly with eCommerce software such as PayPal and Stripe. This makes it incredibly simple for transactions, bypassing extra web development on our part to get payment systems to work properly.
We can build you an online classroom with extended course material and complex administration and management components or develop a simple collaboration for external clients or in house staff members.
Tiny House University
Our clients Shannon and Fred Shultz from Fred’s Tiny Houses is Australia’s pioneer tiny home building company, ranking in the top five of experts in the field. Fred’s workshops are incredibly popular and book out within days. His knowledge is in high demand without enough hours in a day to deliver his tiny home revolution across the country. Realising this leaves potential participants very disappointed, Fred needed a solution to continue helping people build their dream home; and also to stop their business going elsewhere.
So, we came to the rescue with the Tiny House University, a highly functional 12-unit course with helpful quizzes that can be completed at the particpants’ own pace. With Fred and Shannon’s knowledge and our web development expertise, Tiny House University is a collaboration built specifically for DIY builders, inexperienced or professional. Modules include how to build for the hot Australian climate, trailer regulations, building techniques and local Council regulations around tiny house occupancy.
Since the tiny home market is having a boom time in the overseas housing market, Fred is developing course work to deliver US specific training material to American enthusiasts. Soon, with country specific research, Fred will be able to deliver tiny house building workshops to any English speaking country thanks to LMS software.
Malignant Hyperthermia (MH)
Malignant Hyperthermia (MH) is a rare life-threatening condition that is usually triggered by exposure to certain drugs used in general anaesthesia. The Anaesthetics Department of the Royal Melbourne Hospital thought this issue was important enough to have a specific site dedicated to providing a focused course with quizzes to update medical staff knowledge of this rare condition.
We developed an LMS to be completed in short modules. The portal allows users to navigate through the modules to complete a two-hour short course. The system is designed so users can sign up and complete the course without involvement from admin staff. Once a module has been completed, the user is automatically issued a downloadable certificate of completion.
Members of the public who suffer from MH can also educate themselves by doing the course and access the resource kit.
